Biopic of Susan Cabot, a B-movie star known for her roles in Roger Corman movies and dating a king. Her career suffered due to her short stature and her frustration with her son's medical condition - dwarfism - led to tragedy.
The back cover sleeve notes of the book by Michael Winkler about the making of this movie, "Fahfangoolah! The Despised and Indispensable Welcome to Woop Woop" (2016), read: "Welcome to Woop Woop worst Australian movie of all time, or invaluable cultural artefact? With wild behind-the-scenes stories featuring Rod Taylor, Susie Porter, Johnathon Schaech, Barry Humphries, Stephan Elliott and a drunk clown; the mapping of links to other outback films; and a detailed argument for its place in the national canon, this companion is as vibrant and provocative as the movie that inspired it."

Welcome to Woop Woop amounts to a farce with a very unique (and appalling) storyline. The town Woop Woop is literally 'off the map' and its inhabitants interact in a surreal and disturbing fashion.
Fleeing from danger in New York, the lead character (Johnathon Schaech) makes it to Australia, only to walk into a much bleaker situation a kind of time-warp - where Daddy-O is the law, the judge, and the executioner. Rule number one: no-one escapes from Woop Woop.
Unfairly criticized as vulgar and offensive, many have missed what this film is all about. Properly understood, however, this makes for highly entertaining (if somewhat foreboding) viewing. Great stuff!
